this sandwich is an unmitigated disaster. i asked for turkey and roast beef with lettuce and swiss on whole wheat. what did they give you? turkey and roast beef with swiss and lettuce on whole wheat. it's the right ingredients, but in the wrong order. in a proper sandwich, the cheese is adjacent to the bread to create a moisture barrier against the lettuce. they might as well have dragged this thing through a car wash. i don't believe it. i know. it's basic culinary science. some guy is auctioning off a miniature time machine prop from the original film, and no one is bidding on it. a time machine from the movie the time machine? no. a time machine from sophie's choice. boy, sophie could have used a time machine in that movie. did you see it? it's rough. wolowitz: oh, that's cool. uh-huh. it's only $800? yeah. and that's my bid. you bid $800?
